In printing industry, four color printing is given the priority before, then gradually developed into the spot-color printin. It is long time to develop step by step in dozen years, from the density to the chromaticity measurement, and appear the X-rite test.
The packaging is the most important market in the the field of printing. Not only the packaging products are of high additional value, but also will directly affect the product and the company's image, such as the particular color is generally adopted for company LOGO . The rise of the spot-color printing has a lot of relevance with the packaging and printin, Such as, food packaging has high requirements on the color.

This is why X-rite cooperate with printing college to establish the color labs.
In addition to measuring tool, in fact, there are many other factors affect the final result of color management, Such as the production process control, the operating personnel's technical level, the production management ideas, etc., which are also the keys to the success of color management.

For example, it is very important for the stability of the production process, if the production process control is bad, no matter how good the measuring instrument, it can not ensure good quality of color.
